Don't worry Daddy, I didn't build it for you.
i am glad to hear!
in fact, i was regretting already my comment because i thought i might have been impolite or rude. if that was the case, this wasn't my intention. you are absolutely right, you didn't build this bike for me. and as long as it is 100% what you like, i am happy about it!
Only on weight weenies would a guy w/a Trek on Lightweights call someone out on $ spent
(Nice Trek BTW)
hit and sunk!
although i did not mean to talk about budget here. for me personally i thought one could build a more harmonious bike for less. but then again, it is all a question of personal taste...
andin the end, what do i have to say here? nothing! it's all your bike!!!
don't get me wrong, i love orange, but i would have either painted the whole frame (including the lugs) or i would have taken a neutral colour (clear or white) and have that built with orange accents like orange decals and chris king parts in mango or similar...
anyway, happy holidays and enjoy your bike!
